Come to the Library TONIGHT (Thursday, Oct. 2nd) from 5-7pm and give your input on how to make the plan even better! Even since this plan was accepted there has been a shift in how cities are implementing improvements for people walking and biking. Updates to the policy section and the system map will help take Eugene to the next level of walk and bike friendliness. Come give your input on what you want to see for yourself, your family, and your community to make Eugene the best place in the country to choose active transportation!
Here’s more information from the city:
The Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan (PBMP) was accepted by Council in 2012 as an interim guiding document for the development of bicycle and pedestrian projects. It will be adopted as part of the city’s Transportation Systems Plan (TSP) in 2015. There will be an open house on Thursday, October 2nd, 2014 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm at the downtown Eugene Library (100 W 10th Avenue) in the Bascom/Tykeson Room. The purpose of the open house is to verify bicycle and pedestrian projects and policies before they are incorporated into the long-range TSP. Maps and comment forms will be available for you to provide your preferences. Drop in anytime between 5pm and 7pm. For more information click here: www.eugene-or.gov/bikepedplan
